eine baustrategische Untersuchung der Marke Cartier und der Corporate Architecture von Luxusmodemarken seit 1990.
Vanessa Isabel Mueller

Meine Dissertation umfasst alle Aspekte der Unternehmenstarchitektur der führenden Luxusgüterhersteller von 1990 bis heute. Armani, Hermès, Prada, Cartier und Louis Vuitton ziehen Frauen und Männer an - im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Warum bauen die Firmen ihre Point-of-Sales und Firmensitze so, wie sie bauen? Meine Arbeit liefert eine umfassende und aktuelle Studie zur Marketing- und Baustrategie der führenden  Luxusartikelhersteller. Der Luxusmarkt - ein erstrangiger Wirtschaftsfaktor.
